Casio G-Shock GST-B200 Watches

About the Watch in short. A fresh representative of the G-Steel line is the steel G-Shock with the new protective structure of the Carbon Core Guard. The inner part of the case, which is responsible for protecting the module from negative influences, is made of carbon fiber reinforced polyurethane, making the case stronger and lighter. The dimensions are reduced compared to the GST-W300 – 53.3 x 49.2 x 14.5 mm versus 55.9 x 49.3 x 15.3 mm. All details of the GST-B100 [bezel, buttons, screws, back cover] are made of stainless steel. The digital display is made using STN technology, which gives a larger viewing angle and enhanced image clarity. Designers redesigned the look of the buttons – now they look more stylish and modern. Solar power and Bluetooth synchronization are responsible for the basic functionality of the model, and its basic capabilities are complemented by a stopwatch, timer, alarm clock and world clock.

Official Marketing Focus from Casio

From G-SHOCK, the watch brand that is constantly setting new standards for timekeeping toughness, come new G-STEEL models that boast a new shock resistant Carbon Core Guard structure.
The case is made of fine resin that incorporates carbon fiber for light weight along with rigidity that is superior to that of resin. This material protects the internal module from shock-induced damage and deformation. The dual back cover protects the back surface against impact. The small case of the GST-B100 series base model provides a comfortable fit, even though the watch is equipped with a wide face.
The light-on-dark LCD contributes to both functionality and face design.

Purchased a B-1A version from watchshop.com a while ago and spread the payments over 4 months. Got the watch the following day after ordering it. Changed the strap to a nato strap and put a sun company thermometer and compass on the strap. Nice and light combination and thewatch only cost £145. Bargain
